The club put out an appeal earlier the week to identify the culprits.

In a statement the club said: "Following the photos published earlier in the week, Wakefield Trinity have issued two lifetime bans to two men regarding the issue of smoke bombs and general anti-social behaviour.

"The third person in the photos, Mr Tom Roche, has visited the Club and has helped with the ongoing enquiries. Mr Roche has been extremely helpful and his reputation is not in any way tarnished by the events of last week.
